AND THE WHIZZER MOTOR BIKE
Our history with
the Whizzer Motor Bike dates back to the 1950s...
1951 nine year old Ralph Westman was working three jobs to buy his
first Whizzer Motor bike. After several years he saved enough
money to purchase his first Whizzer, it was green with cream pin
Ralph had a dad that was very strict, so he couldn't tell him about
his Whizzer. Eventually dad found out and gave Ralph strict
instructions not to leave the backyard with the bike; he was told
that if he did the bike would be smashed! Now Ralph being a
typical 14 year old boy he occasionally snuck onto the street with
his Whizzer, and as you may guess he got caught and his dad lived up
to his promise and smashed the Whizzer and threw it in the trash.

garbage pit. So when his dad went to work he removed it from
the trash and brought it to his friends house for safe storage.

business fixing them up and selling them. Soon Uncle Sam
called Ralph to serve his country so Ralph sold his first Whizzer

when he returned from the Army he would be able to get his bike
back. In 1963 when he returned home from the Army his friend didn't
have the bike.
1996 Ralph saw an ad in the Walneck's Magazine for a Whizzer bike,
that was the same year as his first Whizzer and the ad indicated it
was a basket case. So he drove to Indiana to check out the
bike and when he looked at the last four digits of the serial number
(3233) he realized he just found the first Whizzer that he purchased
as a child; only this time he had to pay $1,800 to buy it back.
